How can I get the permission to access all notebooks' metadata?


Recommended Posts


I'm writing a chrome extension for quick search notes in fuzzy match model. So I need to cache all notes' metadata(title, url, createdTime,etc) in local storage.

According to evernote offical doc, there are two ways to authenticate to the Evernote API, developer tokens and OAuth. But right now,

1. developer token has been deprecated.(if you go to the application URL you will get Update: the creation of developer tokens is temporarily disabled. 

2. OAuth can only access one specific notebook(depend on user authentication)

So my question is : is there anyway can work around to get all notes' metadata?

Hi.  This is a (mainly) user-supported forum so developer-style questions are usually outside our experience (they are mine,  anyways..).  You could try https://dev.evernote.com/ if you haven't already...

The developer forum is currenty here - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/evernote

Thanks for the reply

Accessing an account via OAuth gives access to all of the notebooks in the account that was authenticated to.

Actually It doesn't work like that for the new API key. User can only authorize one specific notebook for the third party accessing. I have no idea when this policy begins since I'm quite new for evernote development.

I tried on yinxiang account, haven't apply for Evernote international api key yet. But I suppose the security policy would be the same.
